In this class we will explore elements of Contact Tango, a fusion of Contact Improvisation and Tango Argentino. No previous experience in either form is necessary. 

We will start by warming up our bodies with solo exercises, connecting arms and legs to our own centre, using the floor or benches, or the wall. Duet work will follow to share our axis creatively with a partner in dynamic embraces and footwork. We will explore offering and receiving microscopic shifts of weight, inspired by classical and contemporary tango music.  

How can this act of shared balancing inform the partnership at all times? 

“There is a third entity that arises… hopefully you get to the state of agreement between the two of you that neither of you is leading – it doesn’t become leaderless, it is the two of you who are together leading” Steve Paxton (2013) 


Cancellations & refunds  
Prices for classes are kept very low and are subsidized by ID in order to support artists to attend. To keep admin manageable for our small team, we don’t offer refunds if you cancel or can’t attend a class, and we can’t transfer your booking to a different class/event. We hope this is understandable. If a class is cancelled or changed by ID however, we do offer refunds/transfers to everyone who has booked.
